    Cut off the end of the leaf and put it on wet peat moss, it should sprout within weeks. This will work for almost any sundew.

    OK, today i finally did it, i cut a leafe off and put it in moist schultz canadian sphagnum peat moss like 90% and 10% perlite

    i took the part i cut from and placed it in the moss with the other end sticking up, like a handicaped leafe =D

    but when i watered it a lilttle more the top end went down into the soil a bit and ithink taht is fine, DAMNIT I WISH I HAD A DIGITAL CAMERA!

    now hopefuly in a week or so it will grow a brand new adelae [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    and i can have it in the garage next to the TV when my dad is in there watching TV and it will catch all the little pesky mosquito like thingies [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    You should also look uner the plant. Sometimes there are little babies hiding out.

    Just be gentle with the plant. [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
